Track Name: Way That I Feel
WAY THAT I FEEL – by marlene July 2012

I don’t think I am special but
I am here in this
World I have the chance to
Not disappear and
The truth it may be killin
But then it’s life as it is

the truth is hard to swallow
I was only borrow
-ing another day a-
way from this cavern that’s
Mine more often than I
Have the courage to reveal

The way that I feel is the way that I think
If I just can remember me
And don’t let others be in the place that is mine
If they are not invited there

Maybe I am learning some- thing in the final an-
alysis of fear that keeps Me behind the wall and
I am just woman on the way to somewhere
she has never been

The way that I feel is the way that I think
If I just can remember me
And don’t let others be in the place that is mine
be sensual soul

Light is something I have – yearned for always, the
Beating of my heart is – overwhelming some days
And the quiet beaches are – calling to me, When other mirrors tell me lies

And the way that I think is the way that I see
and the voices are here but the one that is me
is the truth that I hear in the heart that is mine
believe believe believe

and the road that I’m on may bring me to my knees, but …
and the sky it is always the color it is
and nothing else really matters
